Horowitz went on to state that he had noticed (and investigated) a sudden onset of a mystery flu that he could not trace back to a logical source using conventional methods and known transition periods. What's more, this mystery illness didn't last for a few days but appeared to be lasting for months, with symptoms of general fatigue and sinus-type congestion. The disease was allegedly being spread via chemtrails.Horowitz pointed to a particular patent registered by the Armed Forces Research Institute of Pathology for a "pathogenic micoplasma" that he believed was responsible for the quiet epidemic spreading almost unnoticed around the United States.
In February 2014, a US Air Force veteran and whistle-blower named Kristen Meghan stated publicly that chemtrails are very real and that she had witnessed the evidence of it firsthand. As part of her job as an environmental engineer, she was aware of exactly what chemicals were going in and out of US military facilities and what they were being used for—or at least she thought she did.
She went on to claim that increasing amounts of chemicals were being used by her department (and the Air Force at large) that had no background to them (e.g. the manufacturer's name or the individual department that required it). When she investigated these chemicals and informed her superiors, she was quickly shut down. As she voiced her frustration on social media, she was subject to threats of incarceration and having her daughter removed from her care.
